    Yes any pet store will carry it. That's what's used to seal my oem headlights after I pried them open. No moisture problems at all.

    Yeah the only thing that might work it baking them and hoping the glue isn't is strong as the GM stuff

    What about the light beam, is yours really low? I need to adjust mine up, but feeling lazy to pull the bumper again

    I ran a seal around the lights. Adjusted the beams up higher. Hopefully this helps.

    I move around a lot in the dark and in comparison to the stock lights they do not seem much lower to me. Changing the H1 bulbs made my output better.

    Looks like the aquarium sealant worked. It rained and no leakage!

    Awesome! There may be hope for these after all. Let us know if you figure out the pin switch for LED DRLs.

    Yep. Completely free of condensation. Even thru heavy heavy rain. But the aquarium sealant is discolored. When they send me the new headlights I'm gonna try and find black sealant.
